Green Line Area Redevelopment committee

Green Line Area Redevelopment committee​

Lo​cal volunteer opportunity

Join Green Line Area Redevelopment committee and act as a local advisor for your community!

The Green Line Area Redevelopment committees includes locally-focused working groups for the communities of Ramsay, Lynnwood, Millican, Ogden, South Hill and Riverbend. Volunteers on each committee will contribute their local knowledge toward the area redevelopment plan (ARP) or station area plan (SAP) that covers their community. The City is now accepting applications for volunteers to review and discuss current redevelopment policies which will guide how these areas grow and change over time. ​

The Green Line is an important transportation network which creates access for many people working, living, visiting and travelling through surrounding communities. With the help of Calgarians, The City is creating policy documents to guide development and growth in communities and station areas near the new Light Rail Transit line.

We are looking for community members of all ages, who are interested in:

  • Learning about The City’s planning and policy development process
  • Acting as a local leader to provide important insight into future development and
    growth in the community
  • Gaining experience analysing local policy planning work
  • Informing future public input processes for related work in your community

Time co​​mmitment

The committee will be selected in early September and commence bi-monthly meetings and review assignments through the fall and winter of 2017. There is the potential the group participation could expand into 2018. This will be discussed in working sessions.

I don’t use email. I don’t like using email. Can I still apply to be part of the group?
